What do you mean by "templates"?  Usually templates are something that you make one of so that you can cut out a bunch of something, like a plywood wing rib template that you use to cut a bazillion ribs out of balsa.

It almost sounds like you mean plans, or you need to know one or more of the 101 ways of transferring a shape from a plan to wood.

You mean plans, which should have ribs and formers drawn on them.

There are a bunch of ways to transfer the drawings on the plans to sheetwood.  Everyone has their favorite (or several, depending on the project and -- in my case -- their mood).

My most common method is to lay the plans over the wood and poke a pin through, then draw the shape with a soft pencil on the wood, then cut.  A second-favorite is to print an extra set of plans, rubber-cement them to the wood, cut, then peel.

At least, I assume you mean plans -- like this, yes?  https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=4258

Sam, and all:
My former flying bud Doug Ellis had the plan copied on a 'Zerox'' machine, just a 1:1 copy.
He then set the copy face down on balsa sheet and ironed the plan, with a non steam iron. Dry heat.
Printwood looked like Berkeley!

We did this from '72 to '88, when Doug moved. By then, I had my own printer.
Not all ink will do this, some is better than others.
